Biblical Characters

Posted on Updated on

A large portion of the art at the Louvre portray Biblical Characters and Biblical Events
Many of these are Alterpieces

There is so much art at the Louvre and so much to learn. The more we know, the more enjoyable the experience. Like going to the Opera. If you are familiar with the songs, the story, the characters, what is going on, what is coming up . . . it is totally different than watching an opera without a clue.
So we try to learn more of the characters, they often recur throughout the museum
